Ref: Supply Teacher vacancy


Dear Mr Jones

I am replying to your advertisement on the website for a supply teacher vacancy. After reading the job description I feel very confident that I have all the experience and abilities that you are looking for.

I currently work very near to St Benedicts High School and I feel that a move to your school would suit me perfectly as not only do I have the required skill sets, but I am also familiar to the area and the local community. I am aware of the high reputation a award winning school like St Benedicts has within the city and am keen to be associated with such a well respected educational institution.

I feel that one of my greatest strengths as a teacher is the ability to meet each students unique needs by having an in-depth understanding of their abilities and needs. My experiences include tutoring, organizing daily activities, and keeping students organised and controlled, all requirements asked for in the job advert.

I feel St Benedicts High School can benefit from my four years of teaching experience and my ability to educate young minds and help them to develop into responsible successful individuals.

I hope that you will consider my application and I would welcome a phone call so that we might be able to set up an interview. If you need any further information then please do not hesitate to contact me. I thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely :
